George already gave three excellent examples: French avenir (venir =
to come), German Zukunft/Dutch toekomst (kommen/komen = to come, komst
= coming), Hung. jövö: (jön, j:öv- "to come"). To add the forth major
European language family, I can add Polish przyszl/os'c' (przyjs'c'
"to come" (ptc. przyszedl/- ~ przyszl/-)).
